Details

Changing the timezone of an object consist in reprojecting time coordinates from a system of reference to another. That is to say that not only the ‘timezone’ attribute is changed : for instance '2012-02-01 14:OO UTC' will be changed in '2012-02-01 15:00 CET' if ‘timezone’ is set to ‘CET’ (French local time).
